• Pre-Order - WAR//PLAGUE - On A Darker Dawn LP
PRE-ORDER before 26th April 2020
For those of you who don’t know who WAR//PLAGUE are… well, you’re missing out. It’s doubtful that a simple review can do the band justice or properly describe one of the finest crust bands going today.
It would seem like cheating to mention MISERY at this point in the review. After all, WAR//PLAGUE are a different group of individuals at a different point in their lives. However, there is no denying the impact and influence that bands like MISERY, AMEBIX, DEVIATED INSTINCT, etc have had on the developing sound of WAR//PLAGUE. In no way am I saying that they are just another throwback band – their sound is definitely their own. I mention MISERY specifically because both bands have created a very heavy, yet diverse crust sound that is as much a nod to the originators of UK crust as it is their original vision of the style. And of course, you can’t deny the Minneapolis connection between the two. There’s no way that either band could have existed outside the twin cities. Call it fate.
